When trying to "replace with After Effects composition" I get the error message above.  I have seen many others with the same issue and logged out and rebooted as suggested and it still doesn't work.  I am using version 17.0.1 of After Effects and 14.0 of Premiere Pro.  What do I need to do to get this functionality to work?  Seems it's going on for years...?

Would you update your Creative Cloud desktop tool if the updater is available?

Hi @lesliek1,

 

Thanks for reaching out. I see that you are trying to send a clip from Premiere Pro to After Effects but it's not working as expected.

Are you on macOS or Windows? Please share the OS version. Try importing the Premiere Pro file in Afte Effects by navigating to File > Import > Import Adobe Premiere Pro Project and check if it's working. Also, try updating the Creative Cloud desktop app as suggested by @ToolfarmJP.

let us know how it goes.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

I am using Windows 10.0.18363 and version 5.0.0.354 Creative Cloud App which seems to be the most up to date version. I tried importing a Premiere Project file into AE and it did not work. The dialogue box pops up and says "connecting to dynamic link server", but it just hangs.

Update, it DOES work to import a Premiere Pro Project file into A!.  At first I was trying to import a file only, but when importing a Premiere Pro Project, it works.  My apologies.  Still can't getting "AE must be installed" error message when trying to Replace with AE Composition

Thanks for trying that @lesliek1. A patch update has been released for After Effects (17.0.2) and Premiere Pro (14.0.1). Could you try installing those updates and check if it brings any change.

Looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks,

Nishu

I believe for dunamic link to work you need to be using the "same" iterations of the software.  Like if you're using AE 2019 then to have dynamic linking the other app has to be 2019 as well.

I just received two AE template files that won't import into Premiere Pro. I get the message "After Effects must be installed to import this file". I am able to open the file in AE 2020 (v17.0.6), and I am using the current version (14.1) of Premiere Pro. I'm working on an iMac Pro with OS High Sierra 10.13.6.

I am having the exact same thing.  I had it working but once i took the latest updates (14.2 & 17.1) it stopped working.  Is there any update on when this will be fixed?

I also tried saving as a 16 and it also didn't work.  To make matters worse, when i try exporting a simple title with some basic animations, after affects throws an exception and gives me the "send report" dialog so i can't even import the mp4.  I was trying to use Media Encoder.  I finally just did the old school, "add to render queue" and was able to export it from AE as an avi.  what a pain.  This suite is much too expensive to have this many issues.
